Room Divider cutting off Siding - Porch/Carport

Recommended Posts

I am having an issue in my 3D view with Home Designer Pro. 

 

I am using the room divider tool to make a porch. Our superintendent prefers to have two dashed lines showing where the beam is, and 1 solid line for the slab. 

 

In the picture attached, you can see that the siding is being cut off on one side of the porch, but not the other.

 

Does anyone know a way to fix this? I've used the railing tool and made it invisible in the past, but then I have to go in and add cad lines and a slab line for there to be the 3 lines we need.

 

Any insight or suggestions is greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance!

Commonly Porch outer walls should be "railing walls" set to display posts or columns, with or without railing. You should be able to change line style, color and line weight of the lines of any object in the software. I think you must acknowledge that the software is pre-programmed to do what it does and acknowledging that fact one would also have to accept that it may not fit, in all ways "what your boss wants or likes".

I see you mentioned Pro.

 

 

 

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

 

Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

Attach the plan file (close Pro first) and someone will take a look.

Your Porch/Carport wall definition is unusual. What's the reason for it?

I ended up figuring it out with the railing tool! Thank you for the help.
